ASTORIA — The Astoria Yacht Club hosts its annual open house at the Yacht Clubroom from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 22.

The clubroom is located upstairs in the Chinook Building, 300 Industry St., at the West Mooring Basin.

Since 1931, the Yacht Club has provided social and boating activities for pleasure boaters on the Lower Columbia. The Yacht Club continues to offer educational and group boating activities, such as navigation and sailing classes, sail racing, cruising groups, paddle adventures and crewing opportunities on the Thursday evening Downtown Rallies.

Those who enjoy (or think they would enjoy) experiencing the river from the deck of a boat can meet other skippers and crew members and learn about the club. Club members will be on hand all afternoon, and will host these discussions:

1 p.m.: Sailing lessons

1:30 p.m.: Local boating conditions

2 p.m.: Paddle group and activities

3:30 p.m.: Thursday Downtown Rallies

4 p.m.: Sailboat racing

Anyone interested in discussing the formation of a dinghy-racing program is also invited to sign up during the afternoon.
